A Chinese appetizer filled with vegetables and meat, a fried wonton may signify creating a gift or project that is filled with good things, wrapped attractively to entice a customer.... Ariadne's Book of Dream
In this kind of dream you are in a situation in which you urgently need to call for help but, maddeningly, the phone won’t work. Either the line is dead, the buttons don’t work or you get through to the wrong person or end up with an operator who cuts you off. You try to explain your situation but no one is willing to help. During these types of dream, tension levels are high. Phones and mobile phones in dreams represent your ability to communicate and dreams about phone trouble typically occur when things are reaching crisis point in waking life. You may be finding it hard to get your message across and to get the help you need.
If the operator puts you on hold or ignores you, it is more likely that you have been ignoring your own needs for rest, outside help or relaxation. The message this dream is trying to convey to you is that it is time to pay closer attention to something that you may have been putting off; this may involve asking for qualified help and support. Phone dreams are usually signals to be honest with yourself and listen to your intuition. A variation of this dream is the email error on your computer screen, indicating an inability to communicate with someone important in your life. Freudians might see phallic symbolism if you are using a mobile phone, suggesting that once again sex is the root of the problem. See also MEDIA AND TECHNOLOGY.... The Element Encyclopedia
